Olympus E-P3 details arrive early

One of the cameras part of Olympus' June 30 event was exposed in large form on Sunday after two slips provided details and photos. The E-P3 is superficially similar to the E-P2 but should bring much improved image quality. From what Photo Rumors was told, it would have a new 12-megapixel sensor with a higher ISO 12,800 sensitivity limit, the rumored faster autofocus, and a built-in flash that had previously been limited to cameras like the E-PL2.

The Micro Four Thirds camera should also have a genuinely new interface that has both a 600,000-pixel touchscreen as well as redesigned buttons, menus, and expansion ports. Movie capture would be upgraded to support 1080i at 60 frames per second.

Many of the details are mysteries. The E-P3 could cost the same $800 in kit form as its predecessor. It as well as the lower-end E-PL3 and E-PM1 should all be unveiled at the same time, although they may not all ship at the same time.
